Asymptotic and scattering behaviour for degenerate multi-solitons in the Hirota equation

Cen, J. and Fring, A. ORCID: 0000-0002-7896-7161 (2019). Asymptotic and scattering behaviour for degenerate multi-solitons in the Hirota equation. Physica D: Nonlinear Phenomena, 397, pp. 17-24. doi: 10.1016/j.physd.2019.05.005


We construct all higher order conserved charges from a general two-dimensional zero curvature condition using a Gardner transformation. Employing twoof those charges in the definition of a Hamiltonian allows to view theHirota equationsas an integrablePT-symmetric extension of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Weconstruct new degenerate multi-soliton solutions from Hirota’sdirect method as well asDarboux-Crum transformations based on Jordan states. We study the properties of thesesolutions, computing their asymptotic time-dependent displacements and also show thattheir scattering process has a distinct characteristic behaviour different from the nonde-generate counterparts allowing only for interactions of absorb-emit type.
